Seychelles Minister at the 2016 Grand Opening Mouratoglou Academy as the islands pursue sports tourism as a new niche market


The Grand Opening of the Mouratoglou Academy coincides with this year’s French Tourism Trade Fair of September which provides the opportunity for Alain St.Ange, the Tourism and Culture Minister from the mid-ocean Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles, to join the entire tennis sport celebrities and champions attending this much-awaited opening ceremony.

The whole international sport medias as well as politicians and of course world-wide influential people will gather for the grand opening of the Mouratoglou Academy.

“It’s going to be the biggest French event since years and years,” said a member of the French press. Minister St.Ange said that for the Seychelles this event opens new contacts. “We have been after developing sports tourism for a while. We have perfect facilities, we have perfect all-year-round summer weather, and we have the most pleasant of environments. We are a safe tourism destination, and we are a visa-free country. We only need to get on this sports celebrity circuit, and being present at this grand opening of the Mouratoglou Academy is just timely,” said the Seychelles Minister.
